Pau Minguell

Spain,  Barcelona ESCAC,  Film School (VFX specialization),  July 31, 2015
My name is PAU MINGUELL and I am 22 years old. Actually I am finalizing my fourth and last year at ESCAC (film school of the University of Barcelona), specialized in Visual Effects.

I want to become a Digital Matte Painter or to be part of a Digital Environment team. I have a lot of motivation and my goals are to improve day after day on this field.

My skills are Digital Matte Painting, 2.5D Camera projections, 3D sculpting, 3D modeling and Environment Concept Design. But also I have a vfx generalist knowledge which it helps me during the creation process.
